As you've been out building your Best of 2009 lists, we've been secretly staring at them, picking them apart, weighing them, and totaling them up to form a list of the top 20 vote-getters. And we're done! Actually, it wasn't so hard. I think Andy just had to make a couple of simple database requests. But that doesn't make it any less impressive! This list was built using your lists. Essentially, if you put a game in the #1 slot, it got 10 points, #2 got 9 points, and so on.
The end result is one of the closest vote tallies I've ever seen when it comes to this sort of user-voting thing. The first and second games are exactly 130 points apart. Looks like you guys came down to the same dilemma that we did when making our choices...
OK, now that you know how this list was built, let's stop screwing around and get to the list itself!
